Spore won't run

So, I contacted the Steam Support about this problem. The community forum is full of threads about this error.
But everybody (Valve and EA) gives a damn about our problems.
It is not possible to play the game anymore. When trying to start it an error occurs: "The data directory is missing or corrupt"
This problem is happening to many players:

And guess what? Nobody cares! No patch, nothing.

Would please someone so kind and do anything? I want to play Spore. I purchased it and paid for it, so I want to use it.

And pardon, I am a little jarateed of how costumers are treaten with their problems. You are really alone when problems occur...

Found something interesting:
go to ea.com, install Origin, contact their support online and tell them, its a known common fault and they will give you spore for free, also grab your CD key from steam also, you'll need to give them that..

Smells like is not a uknown fault and EA wants more players to use their Origin... Valve would you please so kind and get involved to that problem?

Don't count on Valve to help you on Spore with support. They don't care on old games.

Instead, go to http://forum.spore.com/jforum/forums/list.page and post your thread there.
